Is that it then? The Scottish budget is voted down. I watched it on Holyrood TV.
But nobody seemed terribly fussed. Mr Swinney promised that there would be another budget along in a moment.
It would seem to be fairly serious that the government has failed to secure its budget. But the sky has not fallen in. No sign of a confidence vote. So do things just go on as per usual?
Thus what was meant to be a climactic firework display has become a rather damp squib. No doubt the pundits will explain it all later.
